It’s Edmonton’s most iconic structure, but when the sun goes down, that symbol fades away.
Our vision is to turn on the High Level Bridge by decking it out with thousands of smart, programmable LED lights. It’s a never-been-tried-before-but-really-feels-like-Edmonton campaign to ask folks to buy a bulb on the bridge. When this works, we’ll be able to tell you where your bulb is located.
Lighting technology is more affordable and environmentally friendly than ever, but this project won’t be cheap. It’s expected to cost around $3 million and will take a few months to get off the ground.
This isn’t government money. This will be the work of donations big and small—some will be raised in the buy-a-bulb drive, some from the corporate sector. The team effort means the High Level Bridge will keep doing its connecting work, but just a little differently.
People have told us to do it right. And that’s the plan: to turn the bridge into a signature written in light for the future.
Share the vision. Spread the word. Buy a bulb. The lights will do the rest.
